Contractors vs. Full-time Employees
The full time employees are hired by an organization or company and have a fixed monthly income by working dedicated hours every day for assigned days in a week. The full time employees get compensation, company benefits, and are free to use the allotted resources of the company and in return have to pay income tax. However, the contractors are hired on a freelance basis and mostly hired for a particular project or during high requirements by clients. The projects are paid but the contractors are not part of the company’s permanent payroll, have to file their own tax, and can be terminated from work any time.
The employment contracts in Tajikistan are mostly in the written format, but at times, oral contracts are also permitted.
Skuad makes sure to provide a written contract in Tajikistan for the employee with inclusion of all the terms and conditions, compensation, benefits, leaves, and termination policies. Further, it is mandatory for an offer letter and contracts to include the salary, compensation amount, and other benefits. The employment agreement template is provided by Skuad as a part of our EOR service.

Professional employer organizations (PEOs) in Tajikistan offer an HR outsourcing platform for small- to mid-sized businesses. They provide the effective management of payroll, risks, insurance, and benefits.
On the surface, both EOR and PEO services look the same. However,
- PEO services are involved only in HR tasks such as recruitment, onboarding, payroll, termination, and benefits. On the other hand, EOR services take full administration and legal responsibility of the employee and become the legal employer for your subsidiary in the country of your choice.
- A PEO cannot operate if your company’s entities do not already exist in the country. An EOR service can operate without a preexisting entity set up.
Companies can go for any of the two according to their preferences. Skuad provides both PEO and EOR solutions for Tajikistan. Hire Skuad’s expert services to take care of all the compliance and HR-related tasks, from onboarding to training. Talk to our team to learn more.
